Thus, the obvious question: Isn't it prime time for www.google.bt? Surprisingly, the domain is currently available for purchase, arguably one of the last Google domains still not taken. Yes, I know: International companies have to pay a hefty Nu 3,000 per year (around US$70) to register a .bt domain ("exclusive of bank transfer charges"), but with Google's last year's revenue at around Nu 1.3 trillion (!), I have a gut feeling the company can afford this lavish expense.
So please, if you happen to meet Google's CEO, Mr. Larry Page, kindly ask him to consider google.bt. And please let him know that these types of things are better resolved in a civil manner, or else Google might be running the risk of a well-organized campaign via a Facebook page... ;-)

Does anyone know why google.bt is unavailable outside of Bhutan?ReplyDelete
It is such a pity. I would like to find some Dzongkha-language websites, maybe forums or blogs, but I have no idea how can I do it.
